Eagle Cap Extreme Race, Oregon.

video

Short video clip from the start, through the 1st night and into a glorious sunrise from the Eagle Cap Extreme 200 race.
I hope you enjoy. The ride into the sunrise was one of the most special moments I have ever experienced, the video does not show it in all it's glory, but I hope you get an idea.

Great video, Richard, Oh I really wanted to be there to see you and Karen start and finish. Country is gorgeous, sunrise never lasts very long, but is really beautiful. The shot was like really riding on the sled---great watching Hector and Herman did in an just keep going. What a ride.

Great video. Curious, what did you use to capture it? I can't imagine holding onto a camera at a race start behind 12 strong dogs! Helmet cam of some kind?
